In response to Reply # 2


  

          

those three problems are all related. when embiid is not on the floor, they are not a competitive team and with both him and simmons sitting they are terrible. mcconnell tries to pull his weight and i respect his hustle but he is not a good player. redick is not entirely one-dimensional but pretty close, if his shot is off what he gives you in other areas won't really help you win. these are their guys. bayless is junk, that was a junk signing from minute 1. you can't win much with weak guard play. simmons is the only decent guard they have and they have a some gap-pluggers (covington, saric, holmes) who are adequate in their roles. if fultz pans out, they are in great shape long-term. if embiid can stay healthy, they can finish .500 this year. this thread is just factless, agenda-based bullshit.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Mitchell so not sure why you expect anyone to take your opinions remotely serious when it involves a Duke agenda.

Tatum is absolutely great at what he does, but he's not asked to do all things that Simmons does. Also, Simmons has plenty of time to develop into an elite player. His ceiling is higher. And while he has a glaring weakness, he's still highly productive and impacting the game in a variety of ways.

tatum don't HAVE to do all the padding BS that don't translate into a winning record shit simmons does.

tatum is an efficient and highly-skilled scorer and potentially an all-D guy, something bulldog head and simmons are not.

just recognize and stop looking for things to say.

First it was Kennard was way better than Mitchell.

Then it was, "well, anyone can put up #'s if given the green light he's given."

Then it was, "well, he's a basic combo guard that will never put up 20 points in a game in the NBA."

Now, it's just pretend you never said anything and compare Mitchell to Tatum and not the guy you said would be much better who also happened to be drafted 1 spot ahead of Mitchell.

he is. and? kennard's last performance was a sign of things to come and his skill level, not an aberration. you just setting up to get walked down when your guy tops out as bledsoe II. but quinn is a great coach, so you might get lucky.

I liked Kennard more coming into the draft, as did many. Mitchell is having a better season. I said it just now if I haven’t before. Is that a comment no one should take serious too?

>Tatum is absolutely great at what he does, but he's not asked
>to do all things that Simmons does.

I agree. (Kennard is not asked to do the things Mitchell is asked to do either. Wouldn’t you agree? Or is that just my Duke bias making me wrong for thinking that’s true?)

Also, Simmons has plenty

I agree. Should all of your comments that I never disagreed with be discounted because I agree with them?

5. "they had a solid start and folks got silly."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

expectations went thru the roof.

2 weeks ago i saw some talking head saying that other than cleveland, philly could beat anyone in the east in a playoff series.

last night, barkley said that if they miss the playoffs this would be a "disastrous" season for them. disastrous!

when the ringer ranked their top 25 last month, i think they had simmons and embiid both in the top 12.

like, niggas REALLY came off the top rope with the philly hype this year.

this is the nba. you can't skip steps. they won 28 games last year. if they get to 35 or 40 wins, simmons goes RotY, they get 60 healthy games out of embiid, and fultz shows anything at all whenever he gets on the court, then they've had a perfectly fine season. their train's running on schedule imo.

very disappointing

IRT Simmons, teams are giving him the Tony Allen treatment, playing off of him outside the paint and daring him to shoot

Embiid gon Embiid though, very happy with him this year

still looks to be running at about 80%, but his face up/perimeter game, eurostep, defense...very very impressive

some things to mention

they've had the hardest schedule to date

Embiid still in and out of the lineup

still don't see an identity on O or D, side eye to Brett Brown

Fultz is going to play soon...

...so this could turn into another Basa diarrhea post quickly

but yes, a team relying on a rookie and 2nd year player as their primary producers are not setting the league on fire

thanks for pointing it out

7. "man, strength of schedule?"
In response to Reply # 6


  

          

really?

i'd rather a "harder" schedule than 5 more games in the same amount of time.

plus, strength of schedule is in part affected by the team's quality--good teams have worse SoS because they can't play themselves. So, for example, the two games the Cs and 76ers played hurt the Cs' SoS because the sixers aren't good but helped the sixers because the Cs are good. That's about 8% of the sixers' current schedule. that matters for these numbers.

through 34 games they've been outscored by a total of 37 points

SOS is one thing I mentioned among a few things

when take them into consideration

and have a 15-19 result, is it time to jump out the window?

and it's a pathetic one.

embiid is a much better one. 1-7 without him = 14-12 with him.

but were those "hard" games on the schedule??!?!?!

also, losing close games? they're right at their expected win/loss. they should be about 4 games under .500 if they've been outscored by <40 points. WTF type of plea is that?

how different is it, really?

also, you are competing with BOS and GSW. It ain't about being a mediocre playoff team, it was about being a championship level squad. y'all aren't. /story (for this year and almost definitely next year too).

the team is joel embiid, a potentially amazing but extremely flawed Ben Simmons and then some average NBA dudes and some shouldn't see the court dudes. it's meh. like its record, it's average at best. could be good real soon, but we've seen that before.

maybe next year. then again, next year the Cs will be even better than this year's version, so...

Is there any precedent for a team going from 28Ws to a chip in 1 year?

Maybe the year Robinson sat out for SAN?

Last time, the schedule was 1 of a few issues I raised

You don't believe it's a valid problem for any NBA team, got it

Care to discuss any of the other issues I raised?

LOL@chip this year or L, that's not even quality trolling, it's just delusional.

but "we aren't competing with..." is bullshit. yeah, not this year but that's what the goal always is--is a team on the way to that level.

the process was blowing up a mediocre playoff squad so that it'd have a chance at a chip. that's the goal. anything less than chip-level squad is a fail of a process.

you are competing with boston and GSW in the upcoming few years. and people were talking pretty cocky about how it'd be faster than expected. man...it's slower than expected right today.

so when does the process end? when do we talk about THIS YEAR'S team instead of it's potential to get better in the "future"?

90. "OK. let's review:"
In response to Reply # 84


  

          

premise of your post: i thought the sixers had two young legends, how come they aren't winning with them? maybe they aren't that good because the team isn't winning with them.

reality: team lost their ass without them.

not hard to grasp you obtuse loser.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

116. "is that a cogent sentence?"
In response to Reply # 96


  

          

either way we are partying off the near future. if the season ended right today, they'd be in the playoffs. that's fine but not a huge deal. if they miss and add a good player in the draft, also fine. you're making it out like someone had huge expectations for them. they were the worst team in the league last year so anything around .500 would be a big step forward.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

14. "They got 5 good players and TJ"
In response to Reply # 6


  

          

TJ is a fine rotation player. Everybody else on the bench shouldn’t be in an nba rotation.

I’m getting real worried about Colangelo. All of the FAs he’s brought in are unplayable except for JJ, who was a good signing but is only here this year. He’s also left the team bereft of wings and ball handlers. Fultz should help there eventually, but the lack of wings are going to haunt this team.

Of course, none of this has anything to with Embiid or Simmons, so I’m gonna go ahead and bookmark yet another thread for when Simmons is averaging 20 ppg next season and the Sixers are the 4 seed.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

and get him more on the block

Having him try to get to the hoop while also bringing the ball up the court is getting easy to defend

and when he swings it, it's not coming back to him

Still hopeful for this year

and Saric will then probably go to the bench

with Booker, we should have some assemblance of a bench

29. "5 players who fit in their role, not 5 good ones yet. Colangelo is trash"
In response to Reply # 14


  

          

They have two good players, one potentially good player (and another who is injured) and two or three guys who are in their appropriate roles more or less.

Colangelo has been trash from day one. He bungled the asset management of Noel and Okafor. He signed Bayless inexplicably to a three-year deal, the only redeeming thing is that it will expire before Simmons' rookie contract is up. The Fultz deal is TBD but it didn't seem all that process-y, we'll see how the two guys pan out and what the pick turns into though. And, of course, he has done nothing good to redeem his fuckups or shown any kind of clear approach like even above-average GMs do. He seems to be from the Ernie Grunfeld school of mediocrity and capriciousness.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

they count as good. not difference makers, but those dudes could both start on teams making deep runs. cleveland would kill to swap crowder for cov.

saric, yeah you're probably right that he's not quite there yet. he needs to be able to trigger the second team offense better before we say he's good, but he certainly seems on track. and tj is a damn good backup PG.

33. "Those guys and maybe Holmes are good in their roles."
In response to Reply # 30


  

          

Not the same thing as a good player. Covington is kinda close and Saric may get there. The other guys are who they are.

Seems like semantics overall as our overall assessment is the same.

The team is not very deep and the most talented guys are still pretty wet behind the ears. This thread is just opportunism partying off the slump while Embiid has been out or playing at 70%. Of course the Tatum/Simmons comparison is also ridiculous. Simmons is the only guy who can make plays with the ball on his team and carries a huge load. Tatum can pick his spots and take advantage of space from a much better team with an established No. 1 star.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

If either went to Duke this woulmd be a post where you throw a tantrum because everyone else isn't likewise screaming their praises to absurd levels like a North Korean talking about Great Leader while trying not to get sent to a labor camp.

Those who did like them sufficiently would get an infantile rant about how they're YOURS because you said you liked them FIRST.

Both are and will be dope and the Sixers will sit in the upper echelon of the east in three years time.

52. "oh stfu, the premise was they are losing WITH their stars. "
In response to Reply # 41


  

          

They were two games above .500 when Embiid went down if I remember correctly.

1-7 without Embiid

15-12 with him.

So they have been steady with their two stars, an above .500 team from being the worst in the league last year. The only reason he could make this dumb thread is that Embiid had a back issue, yet that undermines the premise that "OH I THOUGHT THEY HAD TWO YOUNG LEGENDS" because they didn't have the better one of the two.

They still have a pretty solid chance at the playoffs but obviously they don't have the supporting cast to win without these guys.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

When embiid is on the court, this team plays .600 ball.

As for Simmons, he isn’t a star yet, because he’s a rookie and rookie’s aren’t stars.

i ain't even giving out rookie year honeymoons anymore. niggas better produce like kyrie did...out the box. or they some shit.

i know it's not over. kinda the point of why i'm heated about the situation. it's never over.

so it's never gonna be over for any young player who gets cysed. never again. they better all work miracles with absolute scrubs in the starting lineup.

*sigh* glad ky got that ring and iconic title winner tho. some guys will only have empty stats, tweets and fake beef.

i seriousy doubt it. so they some shit and not worth cysing and can be justifiably crticized for their flaws. especially those pesky injuries.

is this the part where i act fake sad about the injuries and be like "oh, man...what could be if not for the injuries"? and then throw in a lil sentimentally inconsistent shot like "can't trust him to stay healthy...he just brittle"?

because i COULD do that.

seems like a pretty ridiculous standard that even lebron and d wade didn't meet. if we are going that route (and accepting second fiddles) than kyrie is a failure because he didn't measure up to kobe being a champion at 21.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

i'm not allowing young players on this board to get cysed in peace. i'm throwing shots at everybody. i'm poo poo'ing all this shit. these niggas wanna breakdance over embiid? cool...he don't be winning. not winning player. has nothing to do with the team around him. or the coach. he just not good enough. zingis not good enough either. towns only winning because he the second option now behind Leader Jimmy.

a price must be paid for coming on this board and having the nerve to suggest a 20 year-old kid should carry luke harangody and samardo samuels to the playoffs.

i ain't having no mercy.

In response to Reply # 44


  

          

Something that also plagued Kyrie early in his career, except he didn't win when healthy either.

Last year with Embiid playing OK minutes and in the lineup, they surged and got into the playoff picture briefly. Then he got hurt and they collapsed. This year they have been a bit above .500 with him all year, disaster without him. It's not that complicated.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

If they don't make the playoffs then woo Bron to come through with the stimulus package. They good and coming for a playoff spot so stop hating. Hate on a team that's supposed to be good but sucks like the Thunder.

I want him to stay in Cleveland but Bron owes no Cavs fan anything.

He easily mentors Simmons and this allows him to take a step back and age gracefully without having to play 38 minutes a game as his prime ends.

In a lot of ways it would free him up in terms of scoring and while he couldn't "create" as much, he could still showcase his passing skills in simple yet effective ways.

Take some of the ball handling duty off LeBen’s hands. Let him set up shop on the high post. Teams are saggging way off him when he comes up the floor


Of course fultz ain’t gonna solve the three point shooting needs. But it’s another primary ball handler

In addition to facilitating his shot should be good enough to help create that spacing. Also when we need someone to go get buckets in the 4th those shots will be available for Markelle to go to work.

Donovan Mitchell who can facilitate? Yes please.

In response to Reply # 72


  

          

did anyone actually watch this guy play?

i don't think spacing is *huge* issue--saric, redick, covington and embiid all have range to varying extents--but it's just a matter of having a serviceable guard instead of running bayless at all and mcconnell as much. i would also like to see simmonds away from the 1 a bit, let him do an odom all-over-the-floor type, get experience at multiple positions.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

88. "Fultz will make them worse in the short term"
In response to Reply # 50


  

          

He’s a young point guard. Young point guards make their team worse. We need to be ready for that and not freak out when it happens. He’ll be at least as bad as bayless, whose minutes he’ll take, and worse than TJ. We’ll also probably get him in lineups that have been net positives for us, and he’ll make them worse.

All of this is completely fine and keeps us on schedule with The Process. This was always going to be a consolidation year. We’re spoiled from Embiid and Simmons, but rookies need to play through their mistakes. It will start to pay dividends next year.

Bayless makes Sergio Rodriguez look like Kyrie Irving. Bayless makes Gerald Henderson look like Klay Thompson.

Fultz will IMMEDIATELY be an upgrade from the barely 1-dimensional Bayless. Growing pains be damned.

being like 6-8 seed was their ceiling and it still is. if they miss and get a good pick, whooptydamndoo. you're acting like this is san antonio or cleveland. no win or bust here, no urgency for this season. even if you are applying the kyrie standard (which of course you cried about while wiping your bleeding anus for years on end, ultimately leaving the site), it's premature. neither of their stars has even played a full season of games yet.

while kyrie was healthy the cavs were still trash. embiid plays and we win most of our games. it was like that last year, it's definitely like that this year. the whole premise of this thread was dumb as fuck, very lazy.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Colangelo botched the returns on Noel and Oak but we still loaded with a ton of young talent and I'm not just talking about Joel and Ben.

Plus a ton of cap space next year. They should be a lead contender for Bron next year. But the Sixers are good either way.

In response to Reply # 122


          

The other part of it is us going through the toughest schedule in the NBA out the first 41 games with health AND we still got Fultz whose shot is looking -better- going up to his shooting sessions yesterday.

Thus WHEN Fultz comes back to a team that's > .500 with a all-star big & ROY, to show off a hint at his potential that YOU gassed up, how are we NOT the future?

we been through the alarm-sounding with boston 3 times already this season. y'all wish too hard on kyrie's failures. prolly why he keeps shining. boston set up to eat heavy in the next 18 months, while embiid knees bout to be on the other side of 25 very soon.

they gon get very hot. that ain't wishing. that's just facts.

In response to Reply # 153


  

          

this is embiid's first full season and simmons' first season. the cavs sucked for multiple years after kyrie hit the L. this is worse than your houston thread (which is monumentally bad). i should thank you because the most likely course with a dumbass thread like this is that they win a series this year (maybe two, we'll see), get bron and win a ring just to blow up any "NOPE, STANDARDS!" bullshit you are pushing here. btw the celtics are going fucking nowhere this year in the playoffs, so there's that.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Folks missed that they had the toughest schedule going into Dec/January.

Long as "load management" is minimized, overall roster health is intact & Simmons stay on the attack the 4th seed could def be a thing.

147. "Good coach, good roster, I mean what usually makes teams good"
In response to Reply # 144


  

          

If you put the two rosters together the Sixers would have the best player but Indy is a lot deeper team. If Philly didn't lose Embiid for 10 games or so they'd be comfortably ahead but they lean heavily on one guy. Indy has a nice mix up front and Dipo showing he is by far the best player in his class. Always been a fan of McMillan, evident he'd be a good coach when he was a player. He wasn't doing it on athletic ability. I felt worse for him than anyone that the Portland thing blew up because of injuries, and worse yet it turned into a setback in his career for whatever reason. I am glad to see him thriving now, last year they underachieved and this year he has gotten a younger, deeper team to play ball that is sound and also fun to watch.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

166. "None?"
In response to Reply # 150


  

          

Last I saw he was fifth in terms of favorites in Vegas to win the award and Casey was second. I would probably give the award to Quin Snyder. Doc Rivers has done an excellent job this year just to keep the team afloat. Pop is always a guy to consider. I guess Stevens was the favorite, I like him a lot but I don't get how he should be ahead of Casey, Snyder, McMillan and Pop really. D'Antoni will get votes again but I don't think he should win the award.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

169. "Yeah, he's doing a *way* better job than Brad Stevens. Like, not close...."
In response to Reply # 166


  

          


Stevens' team is *loaded* with current All-Stars (2)
and guys who might be all-stars next year (2 more,
at least)

McMillan? Oladipo was *nothing* in OKC...*nobody* thought
you had an Alpha dog on a *good* team with him. Nate has
turned that team into a solid-good team, almost *all* on
fundamentals and teaching. It's coaching 101.

In response to Reply # 169


  

          

Cs are staying afloat with all their top guys down. Stevens has done a great job and has quickly established himself as an elite coach, much like Doc Rivers did in the early part of his career. You're a guy who poo-pooed Pop so really I am not sure why anyone cares wtf you think

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

188. "I mean, Casey is putting on an all-time clinic. "
In response to Reply # 174


  

          


But the only reason Casey is getting mentioned at all is because
the Celts cooled off considerably. It was Stevens' award.

But Casey wasn't doing a worse job than Stevens at any point
this season. Casey has been the best, by miles, since
forever.

The other choice is Brett Brown. Funny how Sam Mitchell
didn't get to see the Minnesota project through, but Brett
Brown did.

And then there's Pringles. Lolz.

But continue defending white folks, Dula. It's your schtick.

In response to Reply # 189


  

          

they have all had a lot of injuries and of course in the case of Rivers and Snyder they had key players leave before the season also.

The main reason Rivers isn't getting any push is because the Clippers will narrowly miss the playoffs. He has done an excellent job though

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 150


  

          

Keep pretending like you don't know why Casey doesn't elicit enthusiasm for COTY

We know how this movie ends

It's Stevens BTW

w/o their 2nd best player the entire season and their best player missing significant time

BOS is an entire 3 games behind TOR

Do you think Casey could coach TOR to 2nd place w/o Lowry and Derozan...?

But yes...they're black

223. "Bwahaha. Celts have ANOTHER (and ALMOST A THIRD) OTHER All-Star"
In response to Reply # 194


  

          


Horford is a multi-year all-star

And Jalen Brown was a finalist to replace John Wall
in the All-Star game this year

AND the Celtcs lineup is loaded with other talent.

What draft pick was Lowry? And Derozan was a lower
pick than Kyrie, Jalen Brown, Tatum.

The notion that the Celtics are not loaded with talent
is PURE comedy. Team is LOADED>

>But yes...they're black

Right, which is why *both* were prematurely fired from
jobs where they should not have been>

I hope we somehow get Boston vs. Philly in the ECF, I'd be happy as a goddamn clam. It'd be a fun-ass series, and I'd get to watch some of my favorite Dukies ever battle it out for a chance to play in the Finals.

Also, insert pro-Hinkie comment here. He sacrificed himself for Philly's wins. They should have Hinkie's face on votive candles in Philly.

But he looked like a perfectly normal highly drafted young prospect. Right now, that’s an unequivocal win

The type of circus and day to day to microscope he has had to go through is a joke. The most telling part about him imo is how he's handled everything.

184. "it was fantastic."
In response to Reply # 183


  

          

it was literally so much more than could have been realistically expected.
i can't make any projections on exactly how good he will be - but one of the things we have sorely been missing over this year is a guy who can get his own shot. the fact that he was ready after really, missing this entire season - it's pretty amazing.

if he turned the ball over, missed most of his shots and looked like a puppy with his tail between his legs in this situation i would've been understanding, and still happy that he stepped up and put himself out there. but nah, he legitimately made us better.

ku fucking dos.

absolutely no shade to lonzo, taytum, fox, and the rest of his draft class, but fultz last night felt different than those guys. more explosive. more god-given talent. obviously he has a long way to go to even be mentioned in the same breath as taytum, but it was crystal clear last night why he was the consensus #1.

can i see him shaking off the rust and getting his shot where it needs to be this season? not really. but we knew dude was an athlete and a skilled player. just a matter of getting his body right and finding rhythm at this level. the speed of the pro game isn't a problem for him, but that's hardly the only adjustment a young player has to make

190. "i was in the house for his return"
In response to Reply # 177


  

          

first things i noticed seeing him in person: simmons gallops down the court with the ball, but MF glides, like grant hill or scottie pippen. his arms are long af too. it was amazing for him to not have played all year and come in without taking anything away from their already established rotation while adding the threat of iso scoring. he doesnt look like he did in college, but he's almost there. p&r's with him and embiid are crazy

my prediction is that he hits a three in their next game vs the knicks

In response to Reply # 191


  

          

from the first time he checked in, the crowd was going nuts. it felt like a college game how loud they/we were for him, even after he kept getting his shot blocked. it felt like he was determined to make everybody there proud, and i'm glad to have been a part of what hopefully will be a great redemption story.

I'm actually quite happy with our current roster as well as our financial situation, despite the injury plague, so I'm good with Philly getting two cornerstones.

The fact that I like both Embiid and Ben make it hard to root against Philly.

Hopefully we get a new age Stania War on the board but it kind if blows that I like these guys.

Anyhow...congrats. the rising up phase is always fun.

It’s way too early for Giannis. The easy choice is Kyrie and John Wall, but that’s too easy, since he’s already better than both guys. Maybe Russ?

That didn’t end well and I still got mad bitches like isaaa after me. This won’t end well either. Something gon happen and I’m gonna be the bad guy if I even show up in the thread where y’all lamenting that misfortunate thing that happened.

not sure if you're such a pussy liberal that you thought the ol' crackhead default would be offensive post-obama.

OR...

you have such poor comedic instincts that you couldn't mine the zeitgeist for a funnier drug, so you landed on the one that was the subject of a landmark TV show and thus spawned thousands of hack jokes about meth heads.

either way, i need you to understand niggas don't do meth.

Kyrie is made. If he stays healthy, he’s going to the hall of fame.

And Ben Simmons is already better than him. He’s much better than him at literally every aspect of basketball except scoring already, and he’s a rookie, and Kyrie really isn’t *that* great a scorer. By this time next year, this debate is over and Ben can concertante on the guy he should be chasing, which is Giannis.

Edit: lmao, basketball reference has fat lever as his fourth best statistical comp for the first six years of his career. If that ain’t perfect.

can you please let the sixers do something first? one step at a time.

shit, i'll put cam or RJ on that nigga before i even entertain the idea of you tryna get me to fret about some brick shootin xxl rondo muhfucka who you only cysing over kyrie because kyrie is out right now.

could be a make 'em mad ploy or you could be so starved to cyse the sixers you believe it. *shrug*

and kyrie isn't that great of a scorer...except he is. and unlike the vast majority of elite guards, he can do it efficiently. so, ya'll can icky shuffle and poplock and dame and russ and their lil sub-45 horseshit, but i know why they fold when it matters...they don't have the arsenal.

as far as ben over kyrie already, not yet but it's an eventuality. shells was sucking up to kyrie this time last year. i've been pretty consistent on him, stud player but not good enough to be the no. 1 guy on a title team. not a big deal, few players are.

he's also perpetually overrated by the general public and underrated by the analytics community. that's the way for guys who offer scoring/shot creation and nothing else. how i sound about kyrie usually depends on who's talking.

In response to Reply # 219


  

          

especially when they're playing in a system that got isaiah damn thomas to 29 per last season. he ain't even peak melo, let alone true elite dudes like steph and KD.

and spare me the bullshit about setting up his teammates until he can do 6 assists per on a good team. kyrie's a dude who, when put in the right offensive system with good talent around him, can be an A- first scorer. that's all he's ever shown and that's all he'll ever be.

shit, his fourth best player comp on basketball reference is...the one and only fat lever. https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/i/irvinky01.html . by this time next year only sneakerheads and celtic and duke fans will even think it's a debate.

use basketball reference to find out who the youngest top scorer (career ppg) in the finals.

again, i can't worry about y'all cysing dudes who can't score as efficiently as kyrie.

and "scorer" implies SKILL not VOLUME. SMH.

no one cares about simmons, bro. not even an all-star yet. can't even hit 60 at the line. *shrug*

it really is gonna be terrible watching this eagles-induced confidence you're projecting go up in flames. because i've never had to be the one shitting on you when your philly sports agendas flopped. i ignored them threads because they were none of my business.

our paths have crossed now. and you are insisting on getting me to engage at my very worst. full disclosure: i blocked you to keep me from saying something fucked up when you kept throwing shots, not because i "coudln't take it" or was "too sensitive." now? we cool but i don't know how far i can go with you or the rest of these dudes, so i can't really laugh and point over fucked up shit like i i've been known to do IRL. now? i'm kinda past caring. you niggas been dry-partying or outright bojangling about kyrie's injuries since 2011 and i've held my keystrokes on soooooo many dudes. them days coming to an end.

it's all good when he's got bron to do the consistent lifting every night or brad stephens running the best scheme in the league. he can A minus his way through life, and people like you can pretend he's even on dame's level.

as for the rest, i would have thought it's quite obvious by now that I no longer give a fuck what you think. i'm in this thread because you said something really dumb about the sixers, and now I can party on your perpetually hurt feelings.

It’s like YALL forget everything before and since. What Kyrie could and couldn’t do. How he’d fold under pressure. Welp, just so happens he’s one of the top pressure players on earth.

Guess we’ll see how Simmons and Embiid do.

I guess.

By the way, not tryna start shit, just a question...why you always be in shit you have no stake in just to fuck with me? You aggy about something?

I honestly just post at work or while kinda drunk or high. This felt like a fun argument to jump into as I saw similarities from your Kyrie championing days and the baby Sixers now. No more and no less. I also have nothing to root for now, and it’s fun to talk shit.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

obviously we're more talented, even without embiid. but if there's a coach and a roster than can make the playoffs much different from the regular season for ben, it's spo and that army of long armed wings.
